Motorists' cooperation needed for good bus service

With two new bus operators, commuters will get the opportunity to experience a new level of bus service. Among the key improvements mentioned are the timely arrival of buses at bus stops, minimising bus bunching, and having a more comfortable ride.

For buses to arrive at bus stops in a timely manner, they must be able to enter and leave the bus bays without any obstacle in the way.

To do this, we need car owners and taxi drivers to avoid stopping their vehicles immediately before or after bus stops.

Bus service cannot be improved without the help and cooperation of the public. I hope we can all work together so that we can get the service level we hope for.
